There are a few reasons to be excited for the return of the CNE in Toronto whether that be the rides, the shows, or the games you get to play. But, what we’re most excited about is the food.
The CNE is known for its wacky and wild foodie creations, along with its almost endless food offerings. From a pickle drink to ketchup and mustard-flavoured ice cream, rest assured this year’s food options are out of this world.
Feast your eyes on this sneak peek of all the featured food at this year’s CNE!
First, we have this tasty selection of treats by Farm to Fryer, featuring deep fried dim sum, squid cakes, mac and cheese nuggets, tater tots, deep-fried cheese sticks with Doritos, and fried cheesecake Chimichangas.
You’ll need a big appetite for the two-foot-long tacos at this year’s carnival.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can try the all-new Korean Squidink Corndog or Lobster Mac and Cheese Bowl.
Speaking of mac and cheese, would you dare to try it in lemonade or on a pizza? At the CNE, you can.
There’s also the Flaming Hot Cheetos Smash Burger, as well as deep-fried corn dogs, Mars bars, and even giant mozzarella sticks!
Apparently, there are some massive Cheetos fans because the combinations never end.
Check out the Flaming Hot Cheetos Burrito and the Flaming Hot Cheetos Chicken burger. Now that’s some hot stuff.
It’s going to be a scorching hot week! Cool off with some much-needed ice cream. Kind of.
Try the Dole Whip Pineapple Split featuring fruity pebbles or if you’re feeling super courageous, opt for the pickle version. Yum…
Deep-fried cheese curds, Cinnamon Curd Crunch, and Croffles galore — try saying that five times fast.
You’ll definitely want to try the Timbits poutine and Oreo iced cap! After that, partake in a delicious duel with Lightsaber cotton candy. It’s picture-perfect at night.
For dessert, scoop up a vegan soda float. There are two flavours, a mango passion fruit mojito, and a dragon fruit lychee. Or why not try a savoury-sweet tower on a cone aka the Leaning T.O.wer of pisa.
On the topic of mouthwatering options, check out Krispy Kreme’s Donut Pulled Pork and the Bacon Ice Cream Sandwich.
Just look at that glaze! You’ll want to savour every bite.
We love a sweet and savoury moment on this State Fair hot dog topped with aged cheddar and caramel popcorn, and delicious Cookie Butter Frites.
Deep-fried coffee and pickle lemonade, anyone? Don’t you just love chewing your drink?
Tim Hortons is serving up a unique Matcha Vanilla Croissant and a Matcha Coconut Dream Donut. You can also get yourself a variety of gourmet tater tot creations by Get Your Own Taters (GYOT), including Seoul-ful taters, Loaded Po-taters, and Jamba-Tot-Ya.
